The user who attempted to complete the task is not the user to whom the task is assigned

When you use a workflow (created by SharePoint Designer) to update a task column, if the task is not assigned to the workflow initiator, you will get an error saying “The user who attempted to complete the task is not the user to whom the task is assigned”.

You can go to SharePoint Designer, edit your custom workflow and find the workflow action “Start approval process”, click it’s property, then add this initiator to the “TaskProcessOwner” property ,then republish your workflow and test again.
